    One of the best museums I have ever been. You need to spend there almost 2 hours, to see everything and listen for audio guide. It’s available in English and Russian.

    Very good to visit. A superb representation of difficult times in an amazing building that harks to the steel constructions of the shipyards of the era of 70's and 80's. We had an informative guide, but the museum is well enough constructed with information plate in Englis, to be able to manage your own visit easily. All the facilities you would expect are available, and the displays are thought provoking, and in some cases upsetting.

    Before we travelled to Gdansk we did search what we can see and this cathedral was on our list. You can take tram No 6 in front of main railway station to Oliwa and the ticket costs 4.80 PLN zl. We walked through wonderful park to the cathedral. Entry was free. It's stunning. Built by Cistercian Order in 12th century first as wooden church, later destroyed by various attacks and fire and rebuilt again. Ceiling over the main altar is very unusual. There are several small altars and prayer sides in the northern and southern aisle which are around the central nave and behind the main altar with wonderful religious pictures and statues. Special chapel with door is for prayers who don't wish to be disturb by the tourists. And the main attraction is the great organ which is connected with wire to two other small organs. The sound when the organ is played is just breath taking. To those who know something about organs this one is probably one of the best - it has 110 real voices (87 are in the main organ) and over 7800 pipes, the largest is 10 metres high and it has 64 combinations of instrument settings. AMAZING! The organ is played every day. I would like to be there in summer when the Polish Baltic Philharmonic organizes two concerts a week. You need to be there and listen to it, the sound brought tears in my eyes.

    Went down to the river to see this amazing crane. Looks such a great structure. Not the best photo at night though.

    Many stairs to walk, but worth it. You can only imagine what all these walls heard through the ages. You can see beautiful paintings, old furniture, and portraits of kings who visited Gdańsk.
    Defo not a place for small kids, who are bored and scream in the halls (the acustics are great, so you can hear them all the way :/ )

    It’s definitely special museum, even if about the best thing that you can find here, on the North, near the seashore. Amber, the brightest fossil of the local soil, has been worshiping as a unique material since the first craftsman has stared making toys, jewellery and miscellaneous things.
    From the outside the museum looks like an old temple - the right place, in my opinion, to put such important items. But the interior seems to be very modern and urbanistique. We’ve come as a family of two adults and two children, and the tickets were bearable, even affordable for such masterpiece. The museum is divided by several floors with different timelines and specialisation. Nevertheless, the first floor was quit boring for me due to the very broad explanation of amber’s deep and wide history. But, to be honest, it could be interesting for those who are keen to navigate through these timelines easily. Then, the amber itself, the furniture, jewellery, toys, bigger masterpieces and its history - you could find everything about amber there! Also, you are able to play some chess or checkers on the second or third floor.
    Also, as a bonus, there is a gift shop on the first floor, where you can buy some jewellery from amber, as well as local merch. It definitely worths your time!

    We visited the church thanks to our tour guide's recommendation. There's an amazing, fantastic alter made of amber in it. It's hard to express with the words how beautiful it is when the sun light touches it - worth to see!

    A beautiful building on the Dlugi Targ Square in Gdansk. One of the most beautiful Gdansk tenement houses, with impressive interiors.It was a place of meetings and feasts of patricians and wealthy middle class. They were members of brotherhoods sitting on separate benches. The benches were chosen according to their origin, profession or preferences. The representative seat referred to the ethos of knighthood for which King Arthur was a model of virtues and the round table at which he sat with his companions is a symbol of equality and brotherhood. Impressive Gdansk lions placed on the facade and holding the coat of arms of the city patronized Gdansk residents. The building houses a museum, worth visiting, if only because of the beautiful collection of Gdansk furniture and the amazing tiled stove, richly decorated with images of famous Gdansk residents. Total quantity of tiles in this stove is 520 pieces. It is Europe's largest, 11-meter tiled stove. Interesting exhibits and interiors, even though the museum is small to see. The beautiful are also ship models. The location at the Dlugi Targ Square makes it impossible to overlook it. I would recommend.

    Interesting place for children. You can experience science by touching it. In addition, interesting fortifications on Mount Gradowa and great views of the city.

    There is a small metal
    Building close to the original depot that is being used for tickets and it’s always busy.! Get your tickets online if you can! We did use the ticket agent but she didn’t understand that we wanted a family ticket. Hopefully it will be better when the renovations are over!

    Besides the fact that we are constantly buying honey and cheese in this market, we can recommend meat products, herbal teas and farm products. But cheese and honey are what you have to try!
